I received this picture sometime  ago and was convinced that I had posted it in the archive. I checked and realised I had added a video to youtubeskate.com but not into THOS itself. So here is a great shot of BB and that youtubeskate.com video from 1988.

It looks like WordPress has given me the power to include audio in the archive so what better way to test it out then to pass along this opener from a Raging Lamos gig at CBGB’s NYC (not sure of the date)  If you want more RL’s let me know in the comment section.

Five sheets of plywood and several cords of firewood? I believe skate architecture has evolved into  more economic designs than this but hey it was all uncharted territory back then…you had to skate what you could build. 


That’s me in freakin 1980 man!  London Calling, Freedom of Choice, Back In Black all just released into the world.  Hard to believe they were ever “new”.  Like us I guess. 


Checkout Matt today back in the saddle skating away with Dave and his Nephews up and down the East Coast.
